We develop and manufacture glass fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites using the pultrusion process. 

With our commitment to quality and continuous product improvements, we manufacture the finest GFRP bars and rods in the world. Our strategic OEM partners count on us to deliver consistent quality, performance, and value.

40 Years of Product Innovation

In 1982, inventor and farmer, Peter Holdsworth built his first pultrusion machine on a farm in Gisborne. His goal was to develop and manufacture the first-ever composite electric fencepost and clip system. The system made electric fencing simpler, cheaper, and quicker to install. This became the first patent held by Pultron and led to the establishment of Pultron Composites with businesswoman, Dame Bronwen Holdsworth and a journey to redefine the possibilities of composite materials.

Fast forward 40 years and Pultron has developed world-first innovations for some of the world’s leading companies and we continue to expand our global footprint.

45 World-first Innovations and Technologies

We have developed over 45 world-first innovations and new technologies for marinas, sports, recreation, and infrastructure. Our ongoing product development program ensures our partners have the ultimate composite solution they can deliver to their customers.

The result? Where wood or steel was once the industry standard, fiberglass composites are now being used to deliver greater product longevity.

Here is a snapshot of some of our work:

  • Completed technology transfers to North Carolina (USA) and Dammam (Saudi Arabia) on the back of the success of concrete reinforcement development, Mateenbar™.

  • Over 20 patents, design registrations, and trademarks have been developed.
  • Displaced steel and timber with a GFRP composite system in marinas for an award-winning marina designer.

  • Co-developed an Energy Absorbing Spring System for the World’s Safest Trampoline which is enjoyed by families across the globe.
